1、What is a wool duvet?
Wool duvet, as the name implies, is to use curly wool as a filler to replace traditional cotton. Because the curly wool contains a lot of air; However, the heat transfer rate of air is very low, which can effectively prevent the entry of external cold air and the emission of internal hot air, thus achieving high thermal insulation. At the same time, wool has excellent moisture absorption and release properties, which can continuously absorb moisture and sweat from the human body and discharge it into the air to keep the bedding dry and comfortable. Its luster is soft and elastic, and it is not easy to be stained. It can still maintain its comfort after years of use.
One of the earliest natural fibers used by humans in textiles. The history of human use of wool can be traced back to the Neolithic Age, spread from Central Asia and West Asia to the Mediterranean and other parts of the world, and became the main textile material in Asia and Europe. Wool fiber is soft and elastic, and can be used to make fabrics for domestic and industrial use such as woolen, wool, blankets and felt. Wool products have the characteristics of plump feel, good warmth retention and comfortable wearing. Sheep wool accounts for a large proportion of textile raw materials. Australia, the former Soviet Union, New Zealand, Argentina, China and other countries with large sheep wool production in the world. Sheep wool can be divided into five categories according to fineness and length: fine wool, semi-fine wool, long wool, hybrid wool and coarse wool. Chinese sheep wool includes Mongolian wool, Tibetan wool and Kazakh wool. The main factors to evaluate wool quality are fineness, crimp, color, strength and grass impurity content.
Wool fiber has good crimping characteristics, so the thermal insulation of wool is beyond doubt. And wool has good drapability, so it has good closeness. Advantages: snug and comfortable. Wool is an important raw material in the textile industry. It has the advantages of good elasticity, strong moisture absorption and good warmth retention. However, due to the high price, the use of nonwovens is limited. The nonwovens produced with good wool are only limited to a few advanced industrial fabrics such as needled paper blankets and advanced needled felt. Generally, short wool and coarse wool in wool processing are used to produce carpet backing cloth, needled carpet sandwich layer, thermal insulation and thermal insulation materials, etc. This kind of wool has different length, high impurity content, poor spinnability and difficult processing. The products can be chemically treated to improve quality. For thousands of years, wool has filled our life with its comfort and warmth. Wool is a kind of pure natural fiber, and the imitation of science and technology cannot be matched. We make them into duvets and mattresses and hug them to sleep. Scientific research shows that wool bedding can provide us with more comfortable sleep. It can maintain the same temperature as body temperature and lower the pulse value during sleep. The wool duvet has natural antibacterial property, permanent elasticity, excellent warmth retention and strong moisture absorption and release function; Compared with the chemical fiber space duvet, the keratin protein, the main component of wool fiber, is the same as the protein that protects the appearance of human skin, making it natural skin-friendly, which can maintain the optimal sleep temperature close to the skin of 32.7 ℃, and increase the deep sleep time; The natural antibacterial property of wool can effectively inhibit the growth of mold and mites, making it more healthy in today's avian influenza epidemic.
The advantage of wool production in the world is in the southern hemisphere. Oceania's raw wool production accounts for about 40% of the world's total raw wool. Australia mainly produces fine wool, while New Zealand mainly produces semi-fine wool, with an annual average of more than 5.0kg of individual wool. The level of wool production in South America is also high. Australia, New Zealand, the Soviet Union and China are major wool producers, accounting for about 60% of the world's total wool production. In addition to Australia and New Zealand, the main wool exporting countries include Argentina, Uruguay and South Africa.
Australia is known as "the country on the back of sheep", and the unique climate environment breeds the best wool in the world. Among the wool, Merino sheep is of superior quality. Merino sheep is a sheep unique to Australia. Named after the farm that first bred the sheep, the wool has a diameter of 16~17.5 microns, and its appearance, feel and technological characteristics are similar to cashmere.
Merino sheep adapt to arid and semi-arid climatic conditions, can withstand dry and cold, and avoid humidity. It can graze on natural grassland or artificial replanting grassland all year round, but it is not suitable for areas with many bushes. Winter and spring are the gestation and lactation periods of ewes, which need to be supplemented with hay, silage and concentrate. Strong sociability, lambing once a year, lambing rate 120%~170%. However, the Booroola Merino sheep bred in Australia have a lambing rate of more than 200%. The service life is generally 6~8 years, with long service life.
The wool after carbonization, cleaning and carding will not have any peculiar smell, including mutton smell. In addition, when selecting wool duvets, you must recognize whether there is a pure new wool logo.
It is recommended that you use the simplest method to take a little wool from the opening and see the color of the wool first. The more snow-white, the better. The wool of the authentic Australian 9-month lamb is off-white. If it is too snow-white, it means that the original quality of wool is not very good. There are many procedures for decontamination and impurity removal, which may damage the surface protein. Second, it depends on the fiber thickness. According to the certification regulations of the International Wool Bureau, wool with a length of 2 to 3 inches and a fineness of 28 to 32 microns is the most suitable for making wool duvets. Too thin or too thick is not good. It has good color and resilience. Third, look at the package fabric. The outer cloth must not be coated (similar to the kind of light-proof curtain), so it is likely that the inner wool grease rate and impurity removal are not good, and the outer layer is used to prevent extravasation.
Smell the smell of wool duvet. The wool after carbonization, cleaning and carding will not have any peculiar smell, including mutton smell.
Feel the softness of the bag cloth. If the duvet is hard or brittle, it may be that the fabric has sponge or coating. Such duvet has poor comfort and may exceed the standard of formaldehyde.
